FT-1 Transportation Svc | Pg 5 - Sections 5.1 - 6.2Sheet No. 233.1.012/15/201523 Ver. 3.1.rtfRATE SCHEDULE FT 1 FIRM TRANSPORTATION SERVICE (Continued) 5.1 The Daily Reserved Capacity, as specified in the Service Agreement, shall be the largest daily quantity of capacity that Paiute is obligated to make available to Shipper for firm transportation under this rate schedule during the Winter Period. 5.2 The Summer Daily Reserved Capacity, as specified in the Service Agreement, shall be the largest daily quantity of capacity that Paiute is obligated to make available to Shipper for firm transportation under this rate schedule during the Summer Period. 6. FACILITY ADDITIONS 6.1 For purposes of this Section 6, the term 'facilities' is defined as facilities that are necessary for the receipt of gas from, or the delivery of gas to, one or more Shippers. Facilities include, but are not limited to, receipt and delivery laterals, and receipt and delivery point equipment. Facilities do not include any additional mainline compression or mainline pipeline looping or replacement, or any facilities that increase Paiute's mainline transmission capacity. This section does not apply to receipt or delivery facilities constructed by Paiute to accommodate new transportation commitments solicited by Paiute through an open season. 6.2 Paiute shall not be obligated to install additional facilities; provided, however, Paiute may install, or Shipper may pay all of the costs (including a gross-up for applicable state and federal income taxes) incurred for installing, additional facilities on a not unduly discriminatory basis and under terms that are mutually agreeable. In the event Paiute incurs the cost of installing additional facilities on behalf of a Shipper, Shipper shall pay, in addition to the rate(s) stated in this Rate Schedule FT-1, the prorated (based on Daily Reserved Capacity) cost of service attributable to any such additional facilities until such time as a different allocation procedure is specified by Commission order. If there is no additional Daily Reserved Capacity attributable to such new facilities, Shipper and Paiute shall mutually agree on a method for Shipper to compensate Paiute for the use of the facilities. (a) Determination of the initial cost of service shall be consistent with the principles underlying Paiute's currently effective firm transportation rates at the time Paiute and Shipper execute an agreement for the construction of the facilities. The cost of service shall be revised to reflect updated cost factors associated with any general rate change implemented by Paiute. The revised cost of service shall be effective coincident with the date that Paiute's new general firm transportation service rates become effective.

FACILITY ADDITIONS (Continued) (b) Shipper may elect at any time to cease paying the cost of service surcharge under this Section 6.2 by paying Paiute for the then remaining net book value of the facilities, including any gross-up for applicable state and federal income taxes. (c) If Shipper elects to pay a cost of service surcharge and subsequently ceases to be a Rate Schedule FT-1 Shipper (unless its obligations hereunder have been assumed by a replacement shipper), Shipper will pay Paiute for the then remaining net book value of the facilities, including any gross-up for applicable state and federal income taxes, within 30 days after Paiute submits an invoice to Shipper. (d) Paiute may waive from time to time, at its discretion, all or a portion of the facility cost reimbursement requirement set forth in this Section 6 if Shipper provides Paiute adequate assurance of transportation revenue to make the construction of facilities economical to Paiute, in Paiute's sole, good faith judgment. All requests for waiver shall be handled by Paiute in a manner which is not unduly discriminatory. 6.3 Paiute will not construct facilities hereunder which will compromise the operational integrity of Paiute's pipeline system or adversely affect its ability to meet its existing firm service obligations. Paiute will own and operate all facilities constructed hereunder. 6.4 Unless otherwise agreed to in writing, Paiute will only be responsible for the operation and maintenance of its own properties and facilities and will not be responsible for the operation and maintenance of any other properties or facilities connected in any way with the transportation of natural gas.

GAS USED BY PAIUTE Shipper shall provide its proportionate share of the Gas Used by Paiute in its day to day operations for transportation hereunder, in accordance with Section 4.2(d) of the General Terms and Conditions of this tariff. 8. MEASUREMENT BASE Refer to Section 2 of the General Terms and Conditions of this tariff. 9. HEAT CONTENT Refer to Section 3.1(e) and Section 3.2(e) of the General Terms and Conditions of this tariff. 10. GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS The General Terms and Conditions contained in this tariff are applicable to this rate schedule and are hereby made a part hereof. 11. RESERVATION CHARGE ADJUSTMENTS 11.1 Subject to the provisions and limitations of this Section 11, if, during any day, Paiute fails to (1) transport for Shipper on that day the quantity of natural gas scheduled by Paiute for delivery to Shipper for transportation under a Service Agreement subject to this rate schedule pursuant to the normal scheduling procedures set forth in Section 4.2 of the General Terms and Conditions of this tariff, or (2) accept on that day for normal scheduling under such Section 4.2 the quantity of natural gas nominated by Shipper for transportation under a Service Agreement subject to this rate schedule, up to Shipper's applicable Reserved Capacity (i.e., Daily Reserved Capacity or Summer Daily Reserved Capacity), less any capacity released by Shipper on such day, and as qualified by this Section 11 and the provisions of Section 4.2 of the General Terms and Conditions, then the reservation charge otherwise payable by Shipper during the month in which such day occurs may be reduced, as prescribed in this Section 11.
FT-1 Transportation Svc | Pg 8 - Section 11.1-11.2Sheet No. 262.0.005/03/201226 Ver. 2.pdfRATE SCHEDULE FT 1 FIRM TRANSPORTATION SERVICE (Continued) 11. RESERVATION CHARGE ADJUSTMENTS (Continued) The scheduling and transportation from the LNG Plant Receipt Point of natural gas to be withdrawn from storage at the LNG Plant for Shipper is subject to Shipper's having sufficient supplies of liquefied natural gas in storage at the LNG Plant and the scheduling of gas for withdrawal from the LNG Plant pursuant to the terms and provisions of this tariff. 11.2 Subject to the provisions of this Section 11, Shipper will be entitled to receive a reservation charge adjustment if Paiute fails to transport or accept for scheduling the quantity of gas requested by Shipper due to an event of force majeure, as set forth in Section 6.1 of the General Terms and Conditions of this tariff, or an event of non routine repairs or maintenance which, if not performed promptly, would likely lead to an operating malfunction or equipment failure or damage, provided that the need for such non-routine repairs or maintenance has not been caused by negligence on the part of Paiute. If Paiute's negligence has caused the need for such non-routine repairs or maintenance and there is no force majeure event, then the provisions of this Section 11.2 shall not apply. The reservation charge adjustment shall be computed by multiplying (i) the quantity of Shipper's scheduled gas that Paiute failed to transport on the first Day that the force majeure event occurred; plus (ii) the quantity of Shipper's scheduled gas that Paiute failed to deliver on the Day following the first Day of the force majeure event if the force majeure event occurred after the Timely Nomination cycle on the Day prior to flow (or the quantity of gas that Shipper nominated in such Timely Nomination Cycle but Paiute failed to deliver, if the force majeure event occurred after such nomination but prior to its confirmation); plus (iii) for each Day of the force majeure event following the Days described in (i) and (ii) above, if any, the average of the daily primary firm quantities of gas transported for Shipper for the seven Days immediately prior to the first Day of the force majeure event, less any quantities of gas transported for Shipper on such Day, to the extent that the difference is positive; by the portion of the Daily Reservation Charge set forth on Sheet No. 10 of this tariff that represents Paiute's equity return and associated income taxes. Such portion of the Daily Reservation Charge will be referred to as the 'Daily Reservation Charge Equity and Tax Component'. The Daily Reservation Charge Equity and Tax Component will be posted on Paiute's Internet website, along with the derivation of such component. Reservation charge adjustments are not applicable to any transportation quantities in (i), (ii), or (iii) above that utilized a Secondary Receipt Point or Secondary Delivery Location.
FT-1 Transportation Svc | Pg 9 - Sections 11.3Sheet No. 272.0.005/03/201227 Ver. 2.pdfRATE SCHEDULE FT 1 FIRM TRANSPORTATION SERVICE (Continued) 11. RESERVATION CHARGE ADJUSTMENTS (Continued) For capacity release transactions, the reservation charge adjustment applicable to the Replacement Shipper shall be computed by multiplying the quantity that Paiute so failed to transport or accept for scheduling on such Day by the daily reservation charge payable by the Releasing Shipper or the daily reservation charge payable by the Replacement Shipper, whichever is less, multiplied by the Daily Reservation Charge Equity and Tax Component expressed as a percentage of the Daily Reservation Charge set forth on Sheet No. 10 of this tariff. If the Replacement Shipper is paying a volumetric rate, no reservation charge adjustment will be provided. 11.3 On a Day for which Paiute gives advance notice of a non-force majeure capacity limitation and it is unable to schedule all gas nominated by Shipper for that Day, Paiute will calculate a reservation charge adjustment for such Shipper. The reservation charge adjustment shall be calculated as the lesser of (i) Shipper's applicable Daily Reserved Capacity; (ii) the average of Shipper's previous seven days' daily primary firm quantities transported that occurred immediately prior to the service interruption; or (iii) such quantity as Shipper has nominated for that Day; minus the quantity scheduled for that Day, which difference, if positive, will be multiplied by the daily reservation charge set forth on Sheet No. 10 of this tariff. If Paiute's notice of non-force majeure capacity limitation is not provided until after the Timely Nomination Cycle then the seven day average criteria in (ii) above will not apply. Daily reservation charge adjustments are not applicable to any transportation quantities in (i), (ii), or (iii) above that utilized a Secondary Receipt Point or Secondary Delivery Location. On Days when Shipper's nominations are curtailed in the Timely Nomination Cycle and, as a result, Shipper nominates volumes on another pipeline, Shipper will not be required to re-nominate quantities that have been determined to be restricted in a nomination cycle after the Timely Nomination Cycle to receive its applicable reservation charge adjustment for that Day.

RESERVATION CHARGE ADJUSTMENTS (Continued) For capacity release transactions, the reservation charge adjustment applicable to the Replacement Shipper shall be computed by multiplying the quantity that Paiute so failed to transport or accept for scheduling on such day by the daily reservation charge payable by the Releasing Shipper or the daily reservation charge payable by the Replacement Shipper, whichever is less. If the Replacement Shipper is paying a volumetric rate, no reservation charge adjustment will be provided. 11.4 The Reservation Charge adjustment provided in this Section 11 shall not apply: (a) to a firm Shipper that is unable to schedule out-of-path transportation, or transportation at a secondary Receipt Point or Delivery Location; (b) to a firm Shipper that is unable to schedule at a Receipt Point or Delivery Location due to that point or location being scheduled properly by an alternate firm or interruptible Shipper in an earlier nomination cycle, which is not eligible to be reduced (bumped) in the current cycle; (c) when Shipper: (1) fails to properly nominate or confirm pursuant to the scheduling timeline and requirements of Section 4.2 of the General Terms and Conditions and/or the other scheduling provisions of this tariff; or (2) fails to deliver gas that conforms to the quality or pressure specifications detailed in Sections 3 and 4 of the General Terms and Conditions; or (3) does not comply with a restricted delivery entitlement notification pursuant to Section 5.2 of the General Terms and Conditions; (4) fails to deliver such gas to Paiute (including the failure to provide for the withdrawal of any necessary quantities of gas from the LNG Plant when such failure is attributable to Shipper), or to Shipper's or Receiving Party's inability to accept delivery of such gas;

Paiute shall have the right to adjust the percentage to reflect the actual quantity of system-wide Gas Used by Paiute, so as not to create an imbalance on Paiute's system. For quantities transported from the Jade Flats Receipt Point to Delivery Location 8 ' Elko, Paiute shall establish a stand-alone percentage based on prior months' lost and unaccounted for quantities, as adjusted for any over- or under-retention of such quantities of Shippers' gas which occurred during such prior months. Paiute shall have the right to adjust the percentage to reflect the quantity of lost and unaccounted for gas, so as not to create an imbalance. In the interests of minimizing any volatility in the monthly percentages of system-wide Gas Used by Paiute and providing some degree of predictability for Shippers' gas acquisition planning purposes, Paiute will use the following parameters in establishing the monthly percentages of system-wide Gas Used by Paiute. For the months of October through March, inclusive, the average of the six monthly percentages of system-wide Gas Used by Paiute shall be no less than 0.8% and no greater than 2.4%; for the months of April through September, inclusive, the average of the six monthly percentages of system-wide Gas Used by Paiute shall be no less than 0.65% and no greater than 1.95%; provided, however, that the average of the six monthly percentages of system-wide Gas Used by Paiute may deviate from the above-prescribed seasonal ranges if (1) Paiute deems it necessary in order to avoid exacerbating its over- or under-retention of system-wide Gas Used by Paiute or an imbalance between Paiute's system and an upstream pipeline system, and (2) Paiute first confers with its affected firm Shippers and explains in detail the reasons for such deviation. In no event will the system-wide percentage for any month exceed 3.0%.

The design vaporization capacity quantity is stated in dekatherms, using an assumption that one dekatherm is equal to one Mcf of gas with a heating content of 1,028 Btu per cubic foot. It is recognized that the design vaporization capacity as expressed in dekatherms may vary from time to time depending upon the actual heating content of the LNG. Vaporization at the LNG Plant may require up to ten (10) hours of warm up time. The scheduling of LNG vaporization shall be subject to such start up period limitation.
GTC - Operating Procedures | Section 4.7 (d) (2) - (4)Sheet No. 1202.0.005/03/2012120 Ver. 2.pdf GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (Continued) 4. OPERATING PROCEDURES (Continued) 4.7 Operating Procedures for Rate Schedules LGS 1 and LGS-2 Service: (Continued) (2) Paiute's LNG Plant was designed as a peaking facility to be used in vaporization mode during the Winter Period. During the Summer Period, the LNG Plant is designed to be in a continuous liquefaction mode for extended periods of time. It is inefficient to switch back and forth between liquefaction and vaporization, therefore, the LNG Plant will not be used to accommodate imbalances in transportation quantities. Shippers may nominate to schedule vaporization during the Summer Period, but only on an emergency basis. Paiute, at its sole discretion, will determine if a Nomination for vaporization during the Summer Period can be scheduled, based on the operational status of the LNG Plant, the time that would be required to place the LNG Plant into vaporization mode, and whether vaporization would otherwise adversely affect LNG Plant operations or Paiute's service obligations. Nothing in this subparagraph shall limit in any manner Shipper's right to tender LNG for receipt into storage at the LNG truck unloading facility subject to Section 4.7(b) hereof. (3) Shipper is solely responsible for scheduling the daily use of the service provided under Rate Schedules LGS-1 and LGS-2 within the parameters outlined in Sections 4.7(d)(1) and 4.7(d)(2) hereof. On any day when Paiute cannot accept all of the Nominations for service under Rate Schedules LGS-1 and LGS-2, service shall be provided first on a pro rata basis to LGS-1 Nominations in proportion to the ratio of the Shipper's Nominations to the total of the Nominations of all LGS-1 Shippers nominating, then on a pro rata basis to LGS-2 Nominations in proportion to the ratio of the Shipper's Nominations to the total of the Nominations of all LGS-2 Shippers nominating. (4) Paiute shall have the right to adjust Shipper's scheduling of vaporization and delivery of gas from the LNG Plant to reflect the withdrawal of Shipper's inventory pursuant to Section 4.7(c)(4) hereof. Paiute shall notify Shipper of any adjustment as soon as practical.

OPERATING PROCEDURES (Continued) 4.8 Arrangements Prior to Receipt and After Delivery: It shall be Shipper's obligation to make arrangements with other parties and make payments for delivery of gas into Paiute's system at the Receipt Point(s) and for receipt of gas after transportation to the Delivery Point(s). Shipper shall be obligated in such arrangements to require daily dispatching and operating coordination by such other parties with Paiute and access by Paiute to appropriate charts and records of upstream pipelines. Such arrangements must be satisfactory to Paiute. 4.9 Operating Information, Estimates and Records: Upon request of Paiute, Shipper shall from time to time submit its best estimates of the daily, monthly and annual quantities of gas to be transported or stored, including peak day requirements, together with such other operating data as Paiute may require in order to plan and schedule its operations. Paiute shall keep accurate records of the quantities of gas nominated and scheduled for transportation and any imbalances and those quantities nominated and tendered for liquefaction and nominated for vaporization, which records shall be made available to Shipper at its request. 4.10 Liability: This Section 4 shall not exempt Paiute from liability it may otherwise have to Shipper arising from negligence, gross negligence or intentional tort. 4.11 Other Procedures: Paiute reserves the right to impose temporarily, at any time and in a non-discriminatory manner, reasonable operating conditions upon the transportation or storage of Shipper's gas which Paiute, in its good faith judgment, deems necessary to protect the integrity of its system. At the earliest feasible time, Paiute shall provide notice to its Shippers of the imposition of, and the anticipated duration of, any such operating conditions.

OVERRUN AND UNDERRUN, BALANCING AND PENALTY PAYMENTS 5.1 Daily Contract Entitlement Overrun: (a) Daily Authorized Quantity: With respect to service rendered under Rate Schedule FT 1 of this tariff, the Daily Authorized Quantity shall be equal to, during the Winter Period, Shipper's Daily Reserved Capacity, or, during the Summer Period, Shipper's Summer Daily Reserved Capacity, as set forth in the applicable Service Agreement(s) between Shipper and Paiute for such service, less any capacity released by Shipper on such day, and less system-wide Gas Used by Paiute or lost and unaccounted for gas, as applicable. With respect to service rendered under Rate Schedule IT 1 of this tariff, the Daily Authorized Quantity shall be equal to the volumes scheduled by Paiute pursuant to the applicable Service Agreement(s) between Shipper and Paiute for such service, less system-wide Gas Used by Paiute or lost and unaccounted for gas, as applicable. (b) Authorized Daily Overrun: In the event that a firm Shipper desires to schedule gas on a given day in excess of its Daily Authorized Quantity, Shipper may request permission from Paiute to schedule such gas in excess of its Daily Authorized Quantity during a Nomination cycle, pursuant to the provisions of Section 4.2 of the General Terms and Conditions of this tariff. If Paiute determines, in its sole reasonable judgment, that sufficient capacity exists on its system for that day to permit Shipper to schedule the requested volume of gas in excess of its Daily Authorized Quantity without impairing Paiute's ability to operate its system facilities or to meet its other service obligations, then Paiute will schedule such gas as Authorized Overrun Gas on the same priority basis as interruptible transportation service. All Authorized Overrun Gas shall be subject to a charge equal to the scheduled quantity of Authorized Overrun Gas in Dekatherms multiplied by the sum of the maximum Daily Reservation Charge, the Usage Charge and any surcharges applicable to Rate Schedule FT 1. Scheduling and any subsequent interruption or curtailment of Authorized Overrun Gas shall be determined in conjunction with and under the same priorities as interruptible service, as set forth in Section 4.2(c)(4) of the General Terms and Conditions of this tariff.

The days during the overrun entitlement period in which the Shipper has an underrun will not be included in the calculation of that Shipper's total overrun quantities. (3) For each day of an underrun entitlement period, any quantity taken by Shipper that is less than its Daily Scheduled Quantity, as defined in Section 4.3(a) of the General Terms and Conditions, shall constitute a Scheduling Underrun, and shall be subject to a penalty, but only in the event that Paiute has been assessed penalties by the upstream pipeline for the Declared or Restricted Entitlement Period. In such event, Paiute shall recover from its Shippers an amount of penalty revenues equal to the amount that Paiute has been assessed by the upstream pipeline. Paiute shall allocate such penalty amount among its Shippers on a pro rata basis, based upon each Shipper's total Scheduling Underrun quantity for the entitlement period compared to the total of all Shippers' Scheduling Underrun quantities for the entitlement period. The days during the underrun entitlement period in which the Shipper has an overrun will not be included in the calculation of that Shipper's total underrun quantities. 5.3 Balancing: (a) Applicability: This section applies to both firm and interruptible transportation service under Rate Schedules FT 1 and IT-1. The balancing of amounts scheduled for receipt by Paiute and amounts delivered by Paiute at its Delivery Points shall be on a thermally equivalent basis, taking into account the portion of the gas received by Paiute that is system-wide Gas Used by Paiute, or lost and unaccounted for gas, as applicable. Such balancing shall be achieved on a daily basis, recognizing reasonable operational variances.

OVERRUN AND UNDERRUN, BALANCING AND PENALTY PAYMENTS (Continued) 5.3 Balancing: (Continued) Imbalances shall accrue to the Receiving Party for the Delivery Points where gas is delivered. For each Gas Day, the total quantities of gas scheduled to the Receiving Party's Delivery Location(s) shall be compared with the total quantities of gas taken from Paiute at the Receiving Party's associated Delivery Points to determine a single imbalance quantity for that Gas Day applicable to the Receiving Party. For purposes of determining imbalance quantities, the quantities of gas scheduled on any Gas Day for Shippers who are not Receiving Parties will be deemed to have been delivered on that Gas Day. Each Receiving Party shall be subject to penalty payments as set forth below for any cumulative imbalances between quantities scheduled and amounts taken from Paiute at such Receiving Party's Delivery Point(s) that are outside the imbalance tolerance ranges set forth in Section 5.3(c). For administering and resolving imbalances at the respective Delivery Point(s) each Receiving Party must either (a) have at least one transportation Service Agreement with Paiute, or (b) designate a Service Agreement held by a Shipper for resolving imbalances as may be required. A Receiving Party shall eliminate any cumulative imbalance between amounts scheduled and amounts actually taken from Paiute at such Receiving Party's Delivery Point(s) within sixty (60) days after its designated Service Agreement is terminated. (b) Responsibility of Receiving Party: It is the responsibility of each Receiving Party to control, and if necessary, adjust amounts scheduled for receipt by Paiute at the Receipt Point(s) and amounts taken at Receiving Party's Delivery Point(s) in order to maintain a daily balance between the two quantities. Paiute shall not be obligated to receive or deliver gas in excess of the quantities scheduled for transportation to Receiving Party's Delivery Location(s).

Any Receiving Party whose cumulative monthly imbalance falls outside a tolerance range of plus or minus five percent (5%) of the sum of the daily scheduled quantities for delivery to Receiving Party's Delivery Location(s) at the end of the month shall be notified by Paiute. Receiving Party shall have forty five (45) days after notification by Paiute to reduce its cumulative imbalance to a level that is within such acceptable tolerance range. The makeup of imbalance gas in the forty five (45) day period shall include any further monthly cumulative imbalance quantities incurred after the notification to Receiving Party through the forty fifth (45th) day. b. In the event the Receiving Party fails to reduce its cumulative imbalance as prescribed pursuant to Section 5.3(c)(1)a. hereof, Receiving Party shall be assessed a penalty, but only in the event that Paiute is assessed penalties by the upstream pipeline for a cumulative monthly imbalance. In such event, Paiute shall recover from its Receiving Parties an amount of penalty revenues equal to the amount that Paiute has been assessed by the upstream pipeline. Paiute shall allocate such penalty amount among its Receiving Parties on a pro rata basis, based upon each Receiving Party's remaining imbalance quantity that is outside of the tolerance range specified in Section 5.3(c)(1)a. hereof. (2) If the upstream pipelines indicate that the total quantities delivered to Paiute from each pipeline at the end of the month are within a tolerance range of ninety five percent (95%) to one hundred five percent (105%) of the total of the daily quantities scheduled for receipt by Paiute at the applicable Receipt Point under Paiute's Rate Schedules FT 1 and IT-1 at the end of that month, no penalties shall apply.

Where an imbalance trading transaction results in an underpayment of transportation revenues to Paiute, Paiute will charge the amount of the underpayment to the Receiving Party who is responsible for the underpayment. Where an imbalance trading transaction results in an overpayment of transportation revenues to Paiute, Paiute will credit or refund the amount of the overpayment to the Receiving Party who made the overpayment. Any trading of Receiving Party imbalances must result in each Receiving Party's imbalance decreasing, but not beyond a zero imbalance level. (1) All imbalance trading will be conducted through Paiute's Internet website. If a Receiving Party desires to trade an imbalance, such Receiving Party must consent to Paiute's release of necessary information regarding the imbalance. (2) Receiving Parties that trade imbalances are responsible for making whatever arrangements they deem necessary to finalize and document the imbalance trade between them. (3) Paiute will not be responsible for eliminating any imbalances between Receiving Party and any third party. Furthermore, Paiute will not be obligated to adjust or deviate from its standard operating and accounting procedures in order to alleviate any such imbalances. (4) Paiute will provide notice of a Receiving Party's previous month's cumulative monthly imbalance no later than the 9th Business Day of the month. All imbalance trading must occur between the 9th and the 17th Business Day of the month. (5) For purposes of trading imbalances between the system and the Adobe Lateral at Delivery Location 8 - Adobe, the trade shall be adjusted for the difference between the system-wide Gas Used by Paiute percentage and the lost and unaccounted for gas percentage on the Adobe Lateral at Delivery Location 8 - Adobe for the month preceding the month in which the imbalance trade occurs. 5.4 General Provisions: (a) Scheduling Overrun, Scheduling Underrun and balancing penalties will be levied by Paiute against the Receiving Party into whose facilities gas is delivered.

As such, all of the provisions of this tariff, as well as the provisions of any related executed Service Agreements, are to be interpreted in a manner consistent with the requirement that Paiute will provide all services in a manner which is not unduly discriminatory. This Section 7 sets forth the procedures for requesting and obtaining transportation and storage services from Paiute. Any party seeking service from Paiute who is not an existing Shipper on Paiute's system must, no later than the time at which it submits to Paiute a request for service or a bid for available capacity, complete and submit to Paiute the Transportation/Storage Service Request Form set forth at Section 25.1 of the General Terms and Conditions. 7.1 Contracting for Firm Transportation and Storage Service: Firm service under Rate Schedules FT 1 or LGS-1 shall be provided when, and to the extent that, Paiute determines that firm capacity is available in Paiute's existing facilities, or will be made available by means of a capacity expansion project following an open season. Paiute will post on its Internet website available unsubscribed firm capacity and firm capacity that will become available due to expiring or terminating agreements. All parties seeking firm service must satisfy Paiute's creditworthiness requirement set forth in Section 7.4. (a) Requests for New Firm Service: A party may submit to Paiute a request for new firm service using the Transportation/Storage Service Request Form set forth at Section 25.1 of the General Terms and Conditions. Paiute will evaluate the information offered in support of the request for service to determine whether there is adequate capacity to fulfill the request for service and whether the request for service is compatible with the operating conditions on Paiute's system. If Paiute determines that it can provide the requested service and the service requestor otherwise meets the requirements of this tariff, then Paiute will award the requested service capacity to the requestor on a first-come, first-served basis, provided that (i) the requestor agrees to pay the maximum tariff rate for the service, and (ii) the subject capacity has previously been offered for purchase under a competitive bid process. Paiute will tender to the service requestor for execution a Service Agreement in the form contained in this tariff. If the requestor fails to execute the Service Agreement and return it to Paiute within 20 days of the date tendered, the requestor's request for service will be deemed null and void.
